Yes, he's a keeper. Good thing we drafted him with the neck injury Madieu Williams suffered.

There is a new satirical MN sports website called sportsonastick.com that talks a lot about Childress's moustache, and a new rule that Chilly has implemented with the offensive line. I imagine that a lot of people are going to agree with it...

I haven't seen a rookie with his confidence in a long time (sans AD). he will go out and perform extremely well. Considering the opposing teams will gun towards his areas, look for him to have big interception and tackle numbers this year.

If you're in a fantasy league like me on yahoo sports where you can have a D, DL, DB player start every week too, Tyrell just became a good pick for DB.

tyrell was probably the most solid player on the first team in that Seattle game. i feel completely comfortable with him at the strong or free safety. looked to do well in coverage and the boy can really hit!

i think max might have been referring to M. williams as a bust? that would make more sense, although i like him as well.
